The Worst Year of My Life
Well, my husband started abusing prescription drugs last year, and now my life's pretty much in ruins. We had to quit my job in January due to a chronic illness, we filed for bankruptcy a couple of months ago, and I have sold nearly all of my jewelry to pay bills. My husband has spent thousands of dollars over the past few months- choosing his addiction over those who love him the most. I have a 2 year old daughter, and I thank God that she's too young to really understand what's going on, but I don't know how much longer I can do this. He went to an inpatient program last week, but he hasn't followed up with the outpatient treatment, so I am thinking he is using again. He has started becoming sneaky again, and I think he has been lying to me again. The thing is, once you lie to someone a few times, they will never believe what you say after that. I give him the benefit of the doubt because he's my husband, and I love him with all of my heart, but I cannot live this life much longer. If he chooses to continue this destructive life, then I will be forced to leave him. I have been trying to find a job for almost 2 months now, and I'm really praying something turns up. I have to be able to support myself and my daughter in the event that he can no longer do it. Thanks to all for listening to my story.
